We are born with no thoughts good or bad, no desires, and no character traits. The first philosopher to debate this belief is Socrates. His major claim to fame is the discovery of the Socratic method. This was a precursor to the Scientific method in which a series of questions are used to eliminate extraneous possibilities and come to a final conclusion. To illustrate this method Socrates would ask a series of questions to someone to discover their underlying beliefs and knowledge. We can conclude that Socrates would disagree with Tom’s beliefs. Plato being a well-known student of Socrates also agreed with the idea that the mind is the source of all knowledge. He would also disagree with Tom’s claims because he believes that the mind is the source of all knowledge and the senses are the places of error and illusion. Tom thinks that the mind has no knowledge at birth and we learn everything through experience and shaping by our parents. John Locke however had a completely different idea on the mind and where knowledge comes from. Locke postulated that the mind is a “blank slate” and that we learn everything through experience. This theory is known as “tabula rasa.” Locke and Tom would agree with one another exactly because both Tom and Locke believe in the idea that people are born without innate ideas or knowledge. Darwin on the other hand dismissed Locke’s idea of Tabula Rasa as radical and completely irrelevant. His ideas of natural selection and the descent of man strictly contradicted every idea of Locke. This would be disagreeing with the ideas of Tom as well.
